It was perfectly still as the sun was coming up with the fog just hanging in place. A single Great Blue Heron disturbed by our passing disappeared to the other side of the pond.
As it got a little brighter hundreds of Pelicans passed over us in undulating formations. No perfect Vs like the Canada Geese on the move for them: the general direction was south but the line weaved and occasionally a group swung around in a loop.
It was well worth getting up early to see this!
